Save Money and Start an Adventure with Couch Surfing
July 10, 2012 3:08 pm ET
Summer’s in full swing and if you haven’t begun to make your travel plans you better start soon! Hotels and quaint B & B’s are filling up all over the country as gas prices drop and both young and old take to the road! Prices of even the smallest rooms are climbing as spaces fill up, but the frugal travel need not worry, CouchSurfing.org is here to alleviate all of your housing problems.
Navigate to this user friendly travel utopia and find an empty couch or bedroom to use for a night. Not only do you have the ability to choose the perfect location but it gives you background on the user as well as references so you don’t need to worry about running into a Silence of the Lambs scenario.
This process will save you both time and money! Take for example a trip to Manhattan, try couch surfing for free compared to the average $200 a night hotel. Also by couch surfing, you allow yourself the ability to spend more of your given budget on gas (helping you go further), food (enjoying more of the local cuisine), and gifts (making sure your girlfriend still talks to you).
